|Grilled Corn on the Cob with Chili-Lime Butter|
Grilling corn on the cob is as easy as can be. There are many ways you can cook your corn on the grill. Some suggest grilling corn on the cob in the husk or wrapped in foil or straight up on the grill. I always choose to grill my corn straight on the grill because I want a bit of grilled flavor added to my corn as a flavor base before adding my favorite chili-lime butter to season it. Plain butter is fine, but adding the chili-lime butter will take your corn from good to great! Make some chili-lime butter today and keep it in your freezer so it will be ready when you need it.
- 1 stick of unsalted butter, softened
- 1 lime, zested and juiced
- 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
- 1 tablespoon chili powder
- 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
- 1 teaspoon black pepper
Mix the butter, juice of one lime, lime zest, cilantro, chili powder, garlic and black pepper together in a small bowl until well combined. Place the butter mixture on a piece of wax paper. Roll the butter mixture into a log shape, twist the ends and refrigerate until chilled and the butter is solid.
Are you ready to grill your corn on the cob? You'll want to preheat your grill to get it good and hot. I use a gas grill, but a charcoal grill works as well. While your grill is preheating, remove the husk and the silks from the corn. Some people like to keep the husks attached. If you do, you'll want to soak the husks in water before you grill so they don't burn to a crisp. I think it is easier just remove the husks completely and toss them in the compost before grilling.
